Spring Cleaning

Spring Cleaning Priority One

To reduce the impact on your business, schedule your warehouse spring cleaning during a time that’s not so busy for your firm. Several days may be necessary to complete the cleaning, depending on your warehouse size.

 

Get Your Space Organized

The next step is to organize yourself before pulling out the cleaning supplies. If there are any loose items lying around cluttering your space, dispose of them or find proper storage for them. Get rid of any goods or inventory that is obstructing aisles. To maintain as clear a floor as possible, stack larger goods on top of one another with a forklift.

 

Restructure Your Warehouse Layout If Necessary

Rearrange or Restructure As Needed

As you begin your spring cleaning, consider how your warehouse is currently set up. Is it effective to meet your needs and avoid warehouse procedures getting bogged down? Does your inventory have enough room in storage, and is everything well-organized and accessible?

If the need is there, now is the right time to rearrange and/or restructure. By merely relocating storage racks or adding more pallet racks, you may greatly expand your storage capacity. Reorganizing will also assist your staff to physically handle, evaluate, and determine whether to keep everything in your warehouse or whether there is a more efficient method to arrange things.

Get Your Entire Team On Board For Cleaning

When beginning the spring cleaning procedure for the warehouse, be certain to involve everyone in the cleaning process! Split up your personnel in groups and give each one specific tasks or areas of the warehouse to work in.

There might be more refuse and unusable items lying around than you think, so you might want to bring in a dumpster to take care of everything that needs to be thrown away. This provides a perfect time to review your inventory. Throw away any stock that is broken or may be out of date. Clean off shelves, remove any empty pallets and sweep up any trash that may be hiding beneath pallet racks.

 

Make Certain Normal Operations Continue Running Effectively

To keep your operations running smoothly and efficiently, now is also a good time to make sure that your material handling equipment—including all automatic dock equipment, conveyors, robotics and forklifts are in good operating order.

As needed, set up routine maintenance inspections. Additionally, remember to maintain the cleanliness of the warehouse’s exterior and check the state of all of your external equipment, such as yard ramps and loading dock ramps.
